    Sucks murray isn't around for denver this time. But if they did overcome 1-3 deficits against utah and lac last year, then they'll have a chance to avenge their 2019 loss from portland later.

    MPJ is around wtf.


    And I think this will be easy enough for Denver.

    Nuggets in 6. Blazers will prove to be tough and then fade away like usual.

    Nuggets are just better, and have the best player.

    I predict Blazers. Jamal Murray was huge last year for Nuggets, and Nuggets will struggle without Murray.

    We beat a Murray/Jokic Nuggets without Nurkic. Now we have Powell, Nurkic, Carmelo Anthony, RoCo...much more depth. I actually am not sure if Nurkic is a good match up with Jokic. But he does set the best screens for Lillard and CJ. Not having Murray Harris hurts them a lot. Harris was a pesky defender that got on my nerves.

    The one thing we just don't know is if Gordon and MPJ can make up for Murray and Harris being gone. Milsap is older but he always kills Portland.

    I feel good about the chances for my Blazers. I wouldn't be shocked if Denver won but it would be a let down.

    What’s the point in bringing up 2019? Both teams are significantly different

    Portlands biggest advantage in this series is health.
    That will be difference

    Interesting matchup.

    Always feel like the Blazers could be better than they wind up being.

    It's because Dame isn't a real superstar.
